Meals at The Ranch Café
Anderson Ranch has made some exciting changes in the Ranch Café! The Ranch Café now offers a creative globally inspired menu, premium coffees and teas, and a delicious and convenient Grab & Go program. You’ll find the Café a peaceful and inspirational environment to relax with fellow community members and artists from all over the world alike.
During the summer the Café serves three meals a day, Monday through Friday as well as dinner on Sunday and a continental breakfast on Saturday. All food preparation is overseen by ServSafe managers. The Café has comfortable indoor and outdoor seating that is arranged in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. Meals may be ordered to go for individuals who would like to take out and dine in other areas of campus. We will have areas across campus set aside for additional well-spaced dining.
Allergies: Anderson Ranch takes food allergies very seriously and is not equipped to handle allergic reactions. If you have specific dietary needs or life threatening allergies, booking your own accommodations off campus is your best option so you have access to a refrigerator and cooking facilities.

The Ranch Café meal plan that is included with your “Room and Board” (R&B) fee strives to provide healthy, creative meals that will nourish your artistic creativity. The R&B plan includes 5 days of continental breakfast that will include a hot offering, 5 lunches with a selection of offerings, and 5 dinners.
